The Historic Small Town That Every Wisconsinite Should Visit At Least Once

While thousands of people visit Door County every year, many don’t experience the entire county. Some stop at Sturgeon Bay and take in the local attractions. Others drive further north, but abandon their adventure after enjoying a creamy ice cream cone at Wilson’s in Ephraim or taking a picture of the rooftop goats at Al Johnson’s in Sister Bay. But to truly experience the *whole* peninsula, it’s worth driving a little further north. At the end of the county, near where the road ends, you’ll find the little town of Gills Rock, Wisconsin. There isn’t much to this tiny little town, but it offers a glimpse back at a time when the county had no tourists and people made their living from the cold waters of Lake Michigan. Here’s what’s waiting for you on your next day trip to Gills Rock.
